Bon Ez is the second route on the left (lower level) encountered in the Black Corridor. Climb through 7 or 8 bolts to a fixed anchor at the top.

Quickdraws, fixed anchors at the top.

A friend of mine was cleaning off the anchors the Tuesday before Thanksgiving last month 2017 and took a nasty fall from the bolts after not setting up her ATC properly to lower off (Sidenote: Always double check your rappel systems before lowering!)After the incident, when we were pulling the rope through we noticed one end of the rope got stuck, we left cut our rope and left the piece there, wanted to post here in case anyone found the rope. It's stuck on a double knot at the top, please do not use as as fixed rope, it's not set up for that! Dec 4, 2017
12/14/2016 ....The Southen Neveda Climbers Coalition with support from ASCA preformed some route maintenance on Bon Ez. The loose hanger on the left anchor bolt was tightened and the bad chain links/rap rings were removed in addition to adding new quicklinks. Dec 14, 2016

Better than the route to its left. A hold has broken right by the third clip making this route a bit harder but not enough to change the grade. Fun!! Jul 28, 2006
